APPLYING THE NORMAL

CURVE CONCEPTS IN
PROBLEM SOLVING
Activity:
A. Sketch the graph of each of the
following and solve for the probability.
Below 70%
1. 3. Between z = -1 and
Above 30%
2. z=1
B. Using the computing formula
for z, fine the value of the
random variable X in each of the
following: 70, 10, z 1.5

1. 68, 4, z 1.2

2. 53, 6, z 1.5

3.
Understanding Test Results
Example:
1. The result of a nationwide aptitude test in mathematics are normally distributed with X = 80 and s = 15. Find the raw score such that 70% of the cases are below it.
2. In the same problem, what is the score that divides the distribution such that 99% of the cases are below it.
Using Probabilitie to Determine Frequencies
Example:
1. The weight of 1000 children average 40kg and the standard deviation is 5kg.
a. How many children weigh above 50kg?
b. How many children weigh below 45kg?
c. How many children weigh between 30kg and 45kg?
